Very nice orchard and a quiet setting for staying 2 nights. Owners took time out of their busy day to make sure I was parked high and dry with rain coming. Their employees, especially Christy Buggia, were very helpful and kind.

My husband and I were set up to stay August 5th. I contacted them in the morning and told them of my arrival time of around 7:30-8:00 p.m. Asked if that would be too late or if it was OK. We had a lot of traffic at the Sleeping Bear Dunes which put us behind schedule by about 1 hour. So, we arrived at 7:45 p.m. All gates were locked. I called the phone number only to have to leave a message. I explained that we were there to stay but I wasn't sure what to do as the gates were closed. In the message to me earlier, it said to go to one of the two gates that was open and go on in. Neither were open. There was a man driving a vehicle around the property and he started to head toward us, then went into a barn and never came back out. I'm quite sure he saw us trying to get in. We waited a little while in hopes of a return call, but nothing. So.. we had a decision to make. It was already 8:00 p.m. and we had a 3-1/2 hour drive home. Do we try to just go to a Cracker Barrel, or just try to make it home. We decided to drive as far as we could (which ended up being the rest of the way home). We arrived home, exhausted about 11:30 p.m. This was our first boondocking experience and I have to admit, it was not a very positive one. Not sure if we will try this again in the future. I was so looking forward to enjoying the next day at their mill, buying blueberries and possibly peaches and sunflowers. To say I was disappointed is an understatement.
